Social Ecology of the City

Enrolment code: HGE210/310

Offered: Launceston: semester 2

Unit description:

Treats the city as more than a collection of physical spaces; it is a site in which social relations and identities, structures and processes interact to affect the opportunities and experiences of the populations who live within it. Throughout the unit, students investigate and critique how key approaches to understanding cities and urban environments have attempted to explain institutional processes, cultural meanings and social relations and patterns that attach to the city.
